The Manhasset Girls Cross Country Team moved up this season to conference three which contained schools with a larger student population. The team finished the regular season with a record of 11 wins and 2 losses.
At the County B championship meet the team finished fourth overall. Competing at the Counties, the top seven included three seniors (Ali Toes, Vicky Bindert, and Jasmine Blocker), two juniors (Liz Bourguet and Elise Ingber), Sophomore Claudia Steck and Freshman Mary Welsh. Steck earned all conference honors by finishing 14th in that race. Welsh won the conference race and went on to finish 20th in the overall County Championship race last Saturday. She was now qualified to represent Nassau County at the State Championship race at the State University at Plattsburgh on Saturday, Nov. 14.
